SNOWBIRD | Boris With Coconut
Coconut / Chocolate / Bourbon
Thinking that his friends who fly South for the winter might be on to something, Owl decided to give it a try. Once there, he wondered why he didn’t go sooner. Wasn’t he supposed to be the wise one? On his flight home, Owl kindly carried a coconut for the sparrow who couldn’t, thus bringing a tropical note to this smooth & rich bourbon barrel-aged stout. You can ponder whether the sparrow was African or European as you enjoy Snowbird’s complex layers of toasted coconut, chocolate & bourbon.
AROMA Coconut / Chocolate / Bourbon
CHARACTER Smooth / Rich
PAIRS WITH Super Rich Chocolate Desserts / Bacon Pancakes With Maple Syrup / Rich Fried Breakfasts
This beer began with Boris, our much-loved Bourbon-barrel-aged Russian Imperial Stout. We always knew it would be the perfect pairing to some delicate coconut. We toasted a large amount of coconut to perfection and left if to age with boris. The result is a lovely marriage of richness and complexity highlighting the subtle sweetness of coconut within layers of chocolate, peat smoke, oak, vanilla, and dark malts.
